DOZENS OF REPORTS OF DRACONIAN CONDITIONS CORROBORATED BY MAJOR MEDIA
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jun. 23, 2017) — On Friday morning, The Post & Email was David Tulis’s guest on his radio show, Nooganomics, to discuss a significant development in exposing corruption and abuse within Tennessee’s prisons.
The segment aired on Hot News Talk Radio at 9:30 a.m. EDT on the self-described “Tennesse Valley’s Most Listened To Talk Station” [sic].
Tulis was copy editor for the Chattanooga Times Free Press for a quarter-century and hosts the show Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. ET.
His website of the same name expounds on liberty issues, including homeschooling and local economics, with more emphasis placed on local government as opposed to that of Washington, DC.
During the interview, The Post & Email’s editor described its reportage of allegations of rampant gang activity, frequent lockdowns, erratic feeding and medication-dispensing schedules, unexplained deaths, and short-staffing, particularly at the Trousdale Turner Correctional Center (TTCC) in Hartsville, run by private prison operator CoreCivic.
Also discussed were reports of poor conditions and treatment in TDOC-run prisons, including what is currently known about the plight of a 64-year-old inmate on a two-week hunger strike at Morgan County Correctional Complex (MCCX) in Wartburg.
As Tulis noted at the beginning of the show, WSMV-Channel 4 in Nashville has run a four-part series beginning on Monday and ending on Thursday which corroborated many of the reports The Post & Email has received over the past 13 months through inmate letters and relatives’ accounts.
Sharon Rondeau has operated The Post & Email since April 2010, focusing on the Obama birth certificate investigation and other government corruption news. She has reported prolifically on constitutional violations within Tennessee’s prison and judicial systems.
